Ana Montiel’s Minimalist Yet Captivating Paintings

A Mexico-based artist, Ana Montiel, creates painting that aim to map the unconscious. Her art is a study of different gradients, reminiscent of Light and Space art genre born in 60s California, examining various light phenomena and how they could affect viewers’ perception.

Indeed, Montiel’s art has a meditative quality achieved thanks to artist’s complex creative process that involves learning about quantum physics or neuroscience. In her art, colors appear as energetic vibrations documented on the spur of the moment and Montiel successfully depicts the ethereality and beauty of such occasions.
